Getting Over a Breakup (As Told Through IKEA Manuals)

While looking for design inspiration for our recent project, I came across the works of designer Caisa Nilaseca. In her series, she proposes seven different solutions to the problem of heartbreak, as told through drawings inspired by IKEA manuals.

What I find so amusing about Nilaseca’s project is how she approached this idea of problem-solving. Although it’s no novel concept that a manual’s purpose is to instruct, I found it so intriguing that the artist chose to tackle the issue of heartbreak. It’s a play on the nature of manuals – Nilaseca is prescribing solutions to a near universal problem, turning something of much emotional weight into an easily solvable issue.
